Disregard trolls - this film is good and definitely worth your time. I am telling this not just as a Pickford fan, I am being impartial. This is actually one of the films that made me a fan of her. All of her "little girl" films are great - no wonder Pickford is remembered primarily for them today even though she played many other roles during her long career. I can only warn that this particular one is a little sugary, corny; Mary herself didn't like it and wasn't eager to make this feature. I think that the best of her Little girl movies is "Rebecca of Sunnybrook Farm" - it's more witty and not that corny. Give it all a try, anyway!
